Most spine procedures can be scheduled within five to seven business days. Every effort will be made to accommodate urgent requests within two days. Spine interventional studies, CT, MRI and PET/CT examinations can be scheduled on the same day.
To make an appointment:
- UCSF patients may obtain a referral from a UCSF primary care doctor, neurologist or neurosurgeon.
- Patients with a doctor outside of UCSF may schedule an appointment directly by calling Radiology Central Scheduling at (415) 353-2573. A prescription from your referring doctor, detailing your complaints and the procedure request, should be faxed to our scheduling office at (415) 353-7140.
